Soooo I decided it was time to get back on the old blog due to popular demand and the need to track my miles on my shoes hah. Today was a bit of a weird workout. Started out with an easy three with the #originalsquad (shoutout to y'all) and then came back for a team speed workout on the bikes (winter strikes again) but unfortunately all the bikes got snatched up so I headed back out to wait for my turn and did another mile and a half and stretched a bit. Then I finally got back on the bikes and it was literally one of the hardest 12ish minutes of my life haha. Who knew such a short bike workout could be so exhausting?! The workout was 1min on at mile pace, 1 min rest, 90 sec on at mile pace, 30 sec rest, and then 30 on at mile pace -- 2 sets. After cooled down a mile with Mario. Then did 2 sets of lower body 1 weights and 10 min of abs. Didn't do hips cuz I really needed a break from those, but I did try unsuccessfully to do fire-log pose... and so it ends. Shoutout to anyone who read this far. You da real MVP.

Had an interesting workout with Guppy this morning. We went to the rec center bc the snow outside was RIDICULOUS. We warmed up a mile on the old tread mill, then did another mile on the treadmill. After that we got a little bored so we did a mile on the legacy center's teeny tiny track, then it was back on the treadmills for another mile, and then alternating until we hit six. 8:20 ap. We decided to take a mile off because we were going to hike/sled later, which was so much fun :)

Whew, first day of high mileage in a loooooong time, and MAN, it was sure high mileage haha. Really tho it wasn't a bad run, just real snowy once again. It ended up being just Guppy and I for most of it. We went up into Alpine and did a nice big loop, running a good half mile of it in knee deep snow cuz we are just that hardcore... and maybe a little dumb. We wish we could see where we actually ran in the spring cuz my guess is that it wasn't on a trail lol. Pace was still decent tho for the terrain... like 8:25ish i think. Legs and feet were tired by the end but twas a good run.

Another high mileage run today and a speed workout (wahoo...). warmed up about a mile to the old MCT and bc the track isn't exactly "runnable" rn we did our workout on the trail. It was 10x200m at mile pace with 2 min active rest inbetween and some speed squats inbetween the last few sets. Workout wasn't too hard, although it's hard to imagine running a whole mile at that pace #yikes. Average 200 was like a 40 seconds for me. After, it was just Guppy and I finishing up our mileage for most of the time again (shoutout to my best pal Gan cuz her calves are not doing so great right now. miss ya love ya <3). But nevertheless Guppy and I cranked out those miles... until Snowball. Ah Snowball, so cute, yet so troublesome. Snowball (as named by yours truly) is a dog (white retriever) that decided he really liked Gups and I when we were just about to turn around up in a neighborhood towards Suncrest. At first it was no biggie like, "oh my gosh it's so cute he likes to run with us!" but pretty soon we realized that Snowball was not planning on going home. We tried to lose the poor doggy several times and even tried knocking on some people's doors, but alas, it was to no avail. Snowball just loved us too much. So we decided our best option was just to keep him safe as he ran with us and we'd take him back to Skyridge and call the number on his tag or something (cuz there was no address on his caller... like what even?) So Snowball ran with us for a couple miles until we reached Smith's when we met this super nice lady who called the number on Snowball's collar and found an address for him and offered to take him home. (Come to find out Snowball's name is actually Oliver but whatevs) But seriously thank goodness we met that lady at that time bc idk if Jamie would have been too pleased with our new team mascot haha. I was a little bit sad to see Snowball go actually, especially cuz he distracted me from how dead my legs were hah. But yeah, we finished up the run. Not sure of the pace but it was probs somewhere around 8:30... idk tho.

ALSO huge happy birthday shoutout to my girls Kaylee and Hannah!

Not too much to say about this one except it was a decent first race back. Ended up being 5 or 6 seconds off my PR but i'm okay with that. Definitely was fun to run the mile again and I felt really good overall. Looking back the third lap was my undoing, so I'm going to try to change that next time! After just finished up mileage with mario.

Also shoutout to everyone else who raced :)
